Profile

Expertise
Talking Points

'The Challenge to Astound Yourself'

From growing up as one of five children in a 'big, crazy, loving family' in Rockhampton, the Beef Capital of Australia, Anna has entertained us on the national stage. A natural comedic storyteller, Anna wrote and presented her own funny stories for The Project on Network Ten, and travel show Queensland Weekender on Network Seven. She approaches life with positivity and hope, and has a great knack of being able to turn a negative into a positive. When playing back a 'disastrous' interview she'd conducted with superstar Russell Crowe, for example, Anna decided to make light of her mistakes and produced a piece on 'How Not to Interview Russell Crowe'...which went on to win the ABC's Comedy Segment of the Year Award, as is currently played as part of the Journalism degree at her former university, QUT. A big believer in backing yourself and stepping out of your comfort zone, Anna has taken leaps of faith which have seen her start out on The Project as a researcher and end up as a presenter, and now, writing her debut romantic comedy novel, 'Girl In Between' which will be published by Allen & Unwin in 2017. With heart and humour, Anna enjoys connecting with all audiences.

Master of Ceremonies - Energising and Engaging

Friendly, funny, and upbeat, Anna uses her unique blend of humour and warmth to keep a conference crowd energised, motivated, and enthused for the speakers and sessions ahead! As an MC, Anna knows the importance of making every attendee and speaker feel supported, inspired, and excited to learn from industry leaders, and she creates an atmosphere of positivity, fun and expectation, whilst also synthesising the big ideas from speakers to ensure maximum impact for audiences.

With Anna as your MC, you can be assured of running a highly successful, empowering and (on-time) motivating event!
